The Stephen Sondheim Theatre - Up Close with Jeff McCarthy!
In 2009, I was lucky enough to stage manage a beautiful production of Sweeney Todd at the Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma. I had never worked regionally before - when Nick Corley called and said that he was directing a production of Sweeney Todd starring Emily Skinner and Jeff McCarthy, I practically ran to the airport! Emily and Jeff had been friends for years, having starred together in the original production of Side Show in 1997! They had an incredible chemistry onstage and their dynamic together was electric! Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett were equal parts fearsome, hilarious, heart-breaking and human. It was an amazing production to be a part of!
